Vision: Healing the Blind in Ethiopia

Short Documentary
Eric Perlman, dir. (16 min)

VISION is the story of five blind Ethiopian farmers and housewives, helpless and hopeless and waiting for death. We follow their lives from darkness, through a simple surgical process, to the astonishing moment that sight returns and their lives become wonderfully normal and productive again. A year and a half later, we see what has changed in the lives of these patients and their families and their communities. Does sight restoration make a difference? There are 20 million people blind from cataracts in the world. Most can be healed in minutes. VISION is their story.
